Sunset Campground is located in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Visitors enjoy scenic views of the river and a waterfall within the campground. The campground is open all year.
There are several hiking trails nearby, including the Silver Star trail which offers excellent views of Portland, Oregon. The area is also popular with kayakers that visit the East Fork Lewis River.
Sunset Campground offers 18 standard sites that accommodate tents and RVs (22 feet), but no hookups are available. Picnic tables and campfire rings with grills are provided, as are 3 vault toilets and trash receptacles.
The campground is just off the East Fork Lewis River at an elevation of 1,000 feet. The campground road and trail path to the falls are paved and shaded by large evergreen trees.
The campground is located in between Mount St. Helens and Mount Adams, and only about an hour north of Portland, Oregon.
ADA Access: N
A nice creek valley, clear easy camp sites with decent spacing, a short walk to a waterfall swim hole, huckleberry and mushroom picking and fantastic sightseeing in Gifford Pinchot top the list here. It's four stars if you get a campsite creekside (which is also further away from the road), three stars for anything else. If Sunset is full, Rock Creek Horse Camp and Cold Creek can each accommodate tent campers - Battle Ground Lake too.
One of my favorite campgrounds. Very well kept and kid friendly campsitewith easy to moderate hikes availabland site. Love the close proximity to the river as well! My only complaint is the near comingling of campsites with RV sites, in my opinion more space between the two is necessary for those of us who want to hear the hum of nature, not RVs, at night.
